Follow these 6 simple steps to radiant skin.
Everyone wants beautiful, healthy skin. It might seem like a lot of work to get the radiant skin that you want, but with these 6 simple steps, you can get the skin that you’ve always dreamed of!
Wash your face every day
Properly cleansing your face is so important to radiant, glowing, skin. A recommended cleansing routine includes a gentle cleanser, toner, topicals, and moisturizer, in that order. Find what works for your skin type. Look for products that are made with your skin type in mind. A product that works for one might not work for another. Check out this blog post for a daily skin regimen according to your skin type.
Dead skin cells make the skin look dull, dry, and tired. Exfoliate at least once a week to get rid of that dead skin and let your complexion shine through. There are two types of exfoliation: Physical and chemical.
- Physical exfoliation involves manually removing dead skin through abrasive cleansers, scrubs, tools, or surfaces. This type of exfoliation will rid your skin of its dead cells, but can also aggravate skin if too much friction is used.
- Chemical exfoliation is a method in which dead skin cells are dissolved by chemical. Some popular chemical exfoliants include chemical peels, topical retinoids, and salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and tartaric acid.
The very best thing you can do for your skin is wear sunscreen daily. Sun damage leads to leathery, wrinkled skin. By protecting your skin from the sun, you’re diminishing your chances of premature aging. Your skin will stay softer and more even in tone and texture. Find an oil-free sunscreen that you love.

Collagen, Vitamin B, and Vitamin C are all super beneficial to the skin. Collagen supplements improve hydration and elasticity, Vitamin B helps improve the tone and texture of the skin, and Vitamin C helps to even pigmentation and brighten overall complexion.

Eat collagen boosting foods
Collagen, the body’s building block, is abundant in the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, and the skin starts to lose its firmness, hydration, and elasticity. One way to ensure that your skin has enough collagen is eating collagen-rich foods. Some of the foods highest in collagen include:
- Egg whites
- Citrus fruits and berries
- Leafy greens
- Beans and legumes
- Nuts and seeds
